Can be quite rewarding - depending on the division and supervisor
Independent Contractor (Current Employee) –  Culver City, CAJanuary 31, 2019
Great environment. For the most part, most departments & divisions are very team-work driven. Downfall is too many systems and separate passwords and confusion with where to go for what.

I didnt like working here
Marketing Intern (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 9, 2019
I was an intern there when the company was going through a lot of changes and a lot of people were fired. I was also my managers first intern ever so I felt like he just didn't really know what to do with me or what tasks were good for interns. Bad mentorship program, not a lot of room for growth. Didnt get much out of it however I was just an intern

Management couldn't get their head out of a computer to look you in the face

Review Summary
Employee (Current Employee) –  Culver City, CA 90232November 24, 2018
OK environment. Some good people. A fair amount of indifference. Its problems stem from the nature of the industry as a whole. Final disposition to be decided soon, one would imagine.

It was a great place to work, but difficult to move up
Mail Clerk (Former Employee) –  Culver CityNovember 7, 2018
This was an amazing starter job for the entertainment industry. In the mailroom I learned how the studio system works and what are all the jobs that the studio offers. However, the pay was terrible and moving out of the mailroom is practically impossible--all the administrative assistant jobs go to the interns.

Associate Creative Director (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CANovember 6, 2018
Lots of new content being developed at Sony. Unfortunately, with the new management, a lot of things will be changing in the near future. It'll be interesting to see where the Television group ends up.

Great company to work for although they are outsourcing like crazy
SOLUTIONS ARCHITECT (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAOctober 27, 2018
Much of the financial business is being moved offshore. IT is almost all ousourced now. They are adopting agile processes and have struggled a little gaining efficiencies from them. They are embracing services and new technologies as well as automated testing and continuous development practices.

Production Coordinatoe (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAOctober 25, 2018
Working in film is the most bizarre and singular working experience available in the US. I had a blast and learned many incredibly valuable skills. If you want to work in film prepare for a feast and famine workflow and the imperative of hustle.

Productive and fun place to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CAOctober 24, 2018
I loved working at Sony. We had a lot of amenities on the lot; such as a free gym, commissaries, coffee shops, emporiums, etc. Great place to work. Really good vibes. Exciting environment to be in. Every company will have its struggles with management, finances, etc. But I loved that Sony had a strong HR group that made it their prerogative to better the organization. Friendly people. Lots of energy. Great vibes all day everyday .
Pros
Free lunch, decent health insurance
Cons
long hours and No breaks on busy days

Using perks to cover up shortcomings...
Transcriptionist (Former Employee) –  Inwood, NYOctober 8, 2018
The title says it all... company uses freebies and food to placate not paying its employees what they should be paid. Work was also highly unorthodox yet repetitive, almost mind-numbing.
Pros
Bbqs, end of the year holiday parties, free random breakfasts/lunches
Cons
Low pay, no raise or yearly increase, unpaid holidays, no overtime

Fun experience working on big projects
Sr. Production Services Technician (DevOps) (Former Employee) –  Culver City, CASeptember 19, 2018
Fun Experience working on major film projects , at times we could go into "crunch mode" having to work 10 plus hours a day but that is expected in the industry. Only reason I decided to leave was because the jobs were leaving the area and going to Canada.
